Come to the 2017 Miller Research Potato Day, Saturday October 7 from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon.
All are invited to come and pick potatoes at the Miller Research Farm at 225 North 400 East (east side of the road behind the trees) in Rupert on Saturday, October 7 from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. Most of the potatoes are Russet Burbank with some reds and Yukon Golds. The potatoes have been raised according to safe, conventional agricultural practices.
You will need to provide your own boxes or bags.
Please only pick in designated areas! Piles of potatoes outside of this area were used in field experiments and we are not giving these away. Many of those piles were harvested earlier and the potatoes will be green and not fit to eat.
Parking is available on the south side of the field and on the north side (about ¼ mile north). Watch for the signs and follow the directions of the Miller Research personnel wearing bright yellow shirts. You can also drive through the field in designated areas if your vehicle is capable.
Please watch for the irrigation risers on each end of the field. Buckets have been placed over the risers to help people avoid running into them.
Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who would be interested. Contact Jeff Miller at (208) 531-5124 if you have any questions.
